    It’s do or die now. Some Great games coming up.

    Army covered and now I’m 59/105 overall $1950/$1000, I’m beating the Stock Market so far. Let’s go with $100 per game.

    #10 Florida at #7 Michigan – Chick-fil-a Peach Bowl – Sat, Dec 29, 12:00 PM ET – The Gators are 5 point dogs against M. This will depend what Michigan team shows up. M has a bunch of starters who are sitting out so that they don’t get injured before the NFL draft. While I understand this business decision, it shows me that there is no loyalty or cohesion at M. They don’t beat the spread.

    #3 Notre Dame at #2 Clemson – Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic – Cfp Semifinal – Sat, Dec 29, 4:00 PM ET – The Good Catholic boys are 12 point dogs against Clemson. I just don’t think that The Golden Domers have a chance against Clemson’s outstanding defense. Clemson covers.

    #4 Oklahoma at #1 Alabama – Capital One Orange Bowl – Cfp Semifinal – Sat, Dec 29, 8:00 PM ET – Oklahoma is a 14 point dog against possibly the greatest program in the history of college football. Nick Saban is simply amazing. Every year his teams are great. They beat this spread.

      Since nobody has posted a dumb politically incorrect joke today:

      A man asked an American Indian what was his wife’s name.
      He replied,

      “She is called Five Horses”.

      The man said,
      “That’s an unusual name for your wife.

      What does it mean?”

      The Old Indian answered,

      “It old Indian Name. It means…

      NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG!

      @ coldwarrior:

      I have a Raspberry Pi $35 connected to the Internet and running KODI

      Not used it for a long time, but there was so much content available for free.

      Some legal, some technically illegal. You have to install plug in thingy software to get the good stuff.

      I remember watching a movie once about 4 hours after its first theater release. Can’t remember which one it was. Could have been Sully or Dead Pool.

      Obviously it was recorded on a cell phone camera then uploaded.

      Anyway without watching the illegally uploaded stuff there are thousands of shows available, and they are downloadable.

      All you do is pick a few just before you go to bed and let them download overnight….

      Monthly costs eat away at ‘disposable income’ People wouldn’t do these work arounds if internet and phone costs were reasonable. Without the cell phone it’s $200/month up here. Regulations stifle competition. Probably free for our swelling illegal immigrant population. They get free housing, utilities, health AND dental care. Plus the lack of English in their kids slows down classroom teaching and crowds the classes at the same time.

      This is Turdo and his Globalist puppet masters finding new ways to tax the middle class. Carbon tax starts January. We are getting charged for exhaling.

      The Federal govt taxes all Canadians who work along with each rovince. BUT, the money given to the Provinces that the Feds provide (so-called equalization payments) goes MOSTLY to Quebec. I’ve seen figures as high as 75%. All Canadians work for Quebec. Where not coincidently most Prime Ministers come from. The most corrupt Province runs Canada. They made ALL of Canada bilingual. Then they exempted Quebec and made it French only. Why people don’t riot is a mystery.

      The sainted lads from South Bend ( Notre Dame) were feloniously assaulted by South Carolona Clemson thugs.
      The defenseless Irish were repeatedly attacked by these ruffians. It was heinous and disturbing to watch.
      I assume that AT&T stadium in Dallas Is now wrapped in yellow crime scene tape.
      The final was Clemson 30 – Notre Dame 3, but it was really a lot worse than that.
      ND Coach Brian Kelly is Coach of Year? I would like to see him dumped and find a decent guy like Lou Holtz and
      restore some class.

      One big debate among modern blues enthusiasts in general, and Samantha Fish fans in particular, is the question of whether she was better with the power trio from her earlier career or the six-(now seven-) piece band she’s toured with since Chills & Fever.

      How about option C? Sam, a microphone, and her trusty Taylor acoustic/electric guitar. Upon arriving at the California Worldfest last summer, she realized that the stage was too small for her full band, so she gave them the afternoon off and played a solo acoustic set. The results were pretty amazing:

      Speisa.com reports: In a build-up to what might end in a regular civil war, Germany now warns of a massive right-wing radicalization due to the migrant crisis – as street fighting and clashes erupt between left-wing and right-wing demonstrators in several German cities.

      The migrant and refugee crisis has led to that right-wing extremists are mobilizing in Germany, warns the German security services BfV.

      CIVIL WAR IS COMING: Germany now joins France as citizens from both countries flood the streets in rage against Islamic immigration

      yeah, I don’t think the yellow vests have much to do with immigration. But I thought I’d post it for thoughts. And I wouldn’t put it past the Germans to get their own thugs out there under a false flag just to create an excuse to crack down.

      Breaking: Elizabeth Warren Announces Formation Of Presidential Exploratory Committee

      Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced on the last day of 2018 she is officially forming a presidential exploratory committee in a bid to run for the presidency in 202o.

      “America’s middle class is under attack,” Warren said in the video on Monday. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.”
